Applications are expected to open on Saturday, December 18, and you can apply online through a link on the City’s website or in person.

An appointment is recommended for in-person application and can be made by calling 866-948-3742.
You can make an appointment until Friday, depending on the city.
“Walk-ins are not encouraged,” the city said.

Once residents make their request, they will receive status updates on their requests.
The St. Louis program comes as nearly a dozen states and cities send out stimulus checks and other payments before Christmas.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Maryland comptroller told The Sun that 7,811 of the stimulus payments sent had been returned, as of November 30.
This program was approved in February, but eligible residents of Maryland can claim up to $ 500 in stimulus payments if they still owe one.
Additionally, California is sending out a new batch of stimulus payments this week.
As part of its Golden State Stimulus II program, an estimated nine million Californians will receive checks worth up to $ 1,100 by the end of the year.
